2017 2nd Quarter Market Watch

There is good news to be found in the Berkshire County Real Estate 2nd quarter market watch report.  The dollar volume of real estate sales is up 4% and the number of transactions sold is up 8%. The number of residential homes, multi-family homes, land parcels, condos and commercial properties sold in the first quarter rose compared to sales last year.  The first quarter of 2017 was very robust, so the continued momentum despite low inventory is a very positive market trend.
